A Comedic Genius
Lucille Ball…. She has been my favorite actress since I was about eight years old when my Grandad had me watch my first episode of I Love Lucy. Now many years later I have seen most of her tv shows and movies and she never ceases to make me laugh. Whenever I don’t feel well one of the first things I do is start watching either I Love Lucy or Lucille Ball and Henry Fonda’s ‘Your’s, mine, and ours’.
I recently found the book The Life Of Lucille Ball on amazon by Kathleen Brady, and I couldn’t wait to start learning more about the life of my favorite actress. I got the audio book, and when I started listening I couldn’t stop. It was so interesting, there was so much I hadn’t known about Lucille. She had such a difficult life, and yet she still managed to build herself up to stardom.
When I got to the part about I Love Lucy and what happened behind the scenes of some episodes, I couldn’t help but re-watch them in a new light. I really enjoyed this book, and if you are a Lucille Ball fan, so will you. It really adds depth to the crazy redhead comedian that brought laughter to so many. I can highly recommend this book to any Lucy fans. So make sure to check out The Life Of Lucille Ball.
Have a good laugh and watch a few of my favorite clips from Lucy!
